JIM transcribes postcard from Helm Ovalene Humble received
Comments re article 72361 Letter Would like to read message on postcard
Miss Humble, the daughter of Louis C. and Thenora Williams Humble, was about three months past her 18th birthday when she received the postcard. The message reads thus:
"Hello, Ovalene. Your card (Larry Smith favorite postcard - CM) rec'd. O.K. how do you like school? Soem one told me you had been a little homesick. I spent a week with 'Mae' [or Mac'??] a while back, and had the dandiest time. When are you coming home? Tell Alice hello. How is Ben? Guess he is O.K. ha. ha. Ans. soon. Maggie"The Horseshoe Bottom (Russell County) newsletter in the December 6, 1911 News stated Ovalene had visited her cousins, the Misses Martha and Ficy Beck, over the weekend. In the summer of 1912, she was one of two teachers selected to teach at Beach Grove school, Russell County, for the upcoming term. In the spring of 1916, she won an award for the 18th most improved handwriting in Prof. E.F. Richardson\'s four-week penmanship class, taught at the Lindsey Wilson Training School. (Ovalene's sister Ora got the award for 19th most improved.) --Jim
